      “Jai yen, Julia,” the Thai women tell her during stressful incidents. “Be calm, keep your heart cool.” Or they might say, “Tham jai, make your heart,” which means acceptance and letting go. For comparison, Cassaniti visits a nearby Christian Thai village where she sees cultural differences in the community’s emotional responses. Thai Men Don’t Lose Their Temper Easily – Thai culture is centered on the idea of ‘jai yen’ (cool heart), but that doesn’t mean what it means in the west. Being ‘jai yen’ means not getting upset about little things, not getting stressed and not showing anger over things you cannot men, overall, tend to be very ‘jai.

    A third heart value is that of maintaining a "cool heart" (jai-yen) as opposed to a "hot heart" (jai-rawn). A person who is jai-yen is patient, forgiving, accepting of the circumstances that life brings, easy-going and can stay calm and collected even in the face of provocation or distress. A hot-hearted person, on the other hand, is impatient.   ใจ//jai can mean heart, mind, spirit. Extracted from The Heart Book (Christopher G. Moore), Thai language does not ignore the intellect (part of the discussion on “heart”), but the emphasis is on the emotive way of seeing and are rarely at a loss for an exact heart phrase to express a feeling or idea.

    Talking very loud is a disrespectful action to do in Thailand, since you’d be losing self-control, which is not accepted in this country. So keep it quiet, especially in public places. Thais refer to it as “Jai yen yen”, which mean “cool heart”. Read Jai Yen Means Keep a Cool Heart by Rupert Nelson for free with a 30 day free trial.

It was out of character for me, and I'd genuinely shocked him. in april my daughter gave me nelson's 2nd book, "jai yen means keep a cool heart." since i am interested in mission work and love reading about southeast asia, i was again fascinated with his honest, humerous, and rather humble report on that period of his life.

next, i just had to re-read nelson's first s: 3. The Thai phrase “jai yen yen” which literally means “keep a cool heart” is very special to me and happens to be tattooed over my heart.
